The tallest is almost 150 metres high..
With the pyramids at the bottom, it can be in Cairo, Egypt, isn't it?

Victoria Peak (& hills) is an integral part of Hong Kong Island skyline:


Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam:


Brooklyn Bridge in New York:


Tower Bridge in London:


And Golden Gate in San Francisco for sure, althouth it's further away from the skyscrapers than some other bridges already mentioned:

Technically the pyramids are in Giza, a suburb of Cairo.

Cairo and the pyramids reminds the African queens

Just to see the Cairo's builldings with the pyramids of Giza in the bottom, it comes to my mind the song African Queens (which the girls from the Ritchie Family recorded in 1977), refering to the Egyptian queens.

It's not really public television, it's pay-per-view where you're forced to pay no matter if you view.

-edit- the term I meant was pay TV, not pay-per-view.

Purely on the natural physical setting, Rio probably has the best surroundings with the beaches, bays, mountains and green forests all within reach of each other. I'd also put Vancouver, Hong Kong, Cape Town, San Francisco, Sydney and Chongqing up there.
